26 Ways To Make Money Online
It’s so easy to allow an inability to make money online to colour your judgement of all ways to make money online, in other word’s you start to see everything as a scam.
It’s easy to fall into the trap and presume it’s impossible to make money online beyond a few pennies and pounds here and there. The truth is that there are definitely some great ways to add potentially many thousands of pounds to your pay packet over a year, with less effort than you might think.
The truth is that there are some great ways to add possibly thousands of pounds to your pay packet over a year, with less effort than you might think at first.
To demonstrate that there are lots of great cash generation options on the Internet, here are 26 ways to make money online.
Sell your gear on eBay
We all have all items that we never use, stored away in cupboards or in the attic, gathering dust on shelves. Whether it’s an old mobile phone, games console, clothes, shows, books, tools you have multiples of!, magazines, artwork, furniture or any of a wide range of other goods, chances are that they will fetch a fair price on the world’s most popular auction site.
Become a mystery shopper ( Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s etc)
You may be surprised by the number of market research companies out there that are eager to pay you to pretend to be a customer in-store and gather information relating to a given retailer’s products, services and all-round customer experience. We would recommend going to Google and searching on ‘Mystery shopper‘, and try them out.
Write product reviews
There are consumer opinions sites – such as Ciao – that are willing to pay you for your reviews, although your pieces will naturally need to be of a certain length and not merely padded out with technical specifications – after all, you are being paid for your original opinions. Different product categories may also bring different levels of pay.
Earn money from your website or blog
Advertising opportunities and affiliate programmes – whereby you refer people to purchase items online – allow you to easily generate some welcome funds from your website or blog, even if your site isn’t based on the most obviously moneyspinning premise.
Sell online course’s (affiliate marketing & create your own)
Companies like Grovo sell thousands of online courses and training academy like Digital Experts Academy has an affiliate scheme where you can make 40% commissions, with $1000 to $8000 payouts possible, one we recommend ourselves having taken the GOLD Level DEA training in Digital Marketing, and currently you can try out all those 1000’s of courses for FREE by clicking here…
Generate cash from your YouTube videos
All that you need for this one is a video camera and a bit of imagination. Why not create useful ‘how-to’ guides or interesting product reviews, then enable advertising so that you can earn money every time someone watches your YouTube video? Record something more provocative or controversial, and it may even ‘go viral’…
Invest in stocks (the easy way)
Stocks and shares may seem a dangerous field to jump into if you know nothing about it, and you would be pretty much right. That’s why social investment network sites like eToro, which allow you to observe the trading activity of other, successful users and learn from them by imitation, are such a godsend for those looking to make money online.
Answer paid surveys
This is a highly rewarding way to make some money on the side if you are the type who always looks forward to questionnaires dropping through your letterbox. Various online networks, such as Swagbucks, give you quick and easy access to the most interesting and profitable surveys.
Buy and sell domain names
A domain name is a website’s address – for example, in the case of Profit Accumulator, www.profitaccumulator.co.uk. Now, just imagine if you cheaply bought a domain name bearing the name of a musician who went on to become a world-famous pop star, how much that domain name would be worth by then. There’s definitely an art to spotting the right, potentially highly lucrative domain names to buy at the early stage when they are still affordable.
Get into website ‘flipping’
‘Flipping’ is the term for the practice of buying or building websites purely to sell on them for profit. It’s easier to get into than you might think, with many people simply buying existing sites, holding onto them for a while and then selling them on if and when they have increased in value. But of course, you could also tap into your inner online entrepreneur by building up a great site from scratch and only then promoting it to potential buyers.
Make money searching online
Yes, even just searching online can give you cash rewards. It’s as simple a process as downloading the Qmee app and searching such popular sites as Google, Yahoo, Bing and Amazon in the normal way. Qmee places some of its own search results alongside the natural ones that you would see anyway, and if you happen to take an interest in one of the Qmee results, you can be quids in – just for clicking.
Write your own eBook
It has never been easier for avid writers to make it big online, thanks to the self-publishing services offered by sites like Amazon. eBook sales are booming, so don’t miss out if you have a brilliant book idea.
Take and sell photos
Alternatively, you might be an enthusiastic amateur photographer, and therefore stand to make a decent amount of money by selling your images to stock photo sites.
Flog your artwork
If you are more of a hands-on, artsy and craftsy person, meanwhile, consider selling your handmade masterpieces through a suitably creative-oriented platform like Etsy.
Rent out your online forum signature
Do you constantly post on online forums, to such an extent that you are a highly respected member of certain sites? If so, consider giving people the chance to feature their website link or banner in your forum signature. Advertise the opportunity in your signature itself, and see if there are any takers – you have nothing to lose!
Rent out your room or garden
Many people are familiar with Airbnb as a portal through which they can let out their spare rooms to travellers, but what about also renting out your garden to campers? Admittedly, you will attract a lot more takers if you live in an especially rural or leafy area.
Become a virtual assistant
There are always people out there, in various parts of the world, who need someone to help them with such tasks as booking flights or sending emails. The many great things about being a virtual assistant include being able to start with pretty much zero experience, as well as – of course – the ability to do it all from the comfort of your own home.
Trade in your old books, music, DVDs and games
It seems that you can trade in just about anything these days for cash, and the above items are no exception, thanks to the many specialised platforms out there – such as We Buy Books – that take away the hassle of you even having to advertise your old stuff to prospective buyers.
Register at Slicethepie, and you will be able to literally listen to music and give your verdict for cash. It’s a great example of how avid music fans really can make money online doing what they love.
Sell your old Disney DVDs
Did you know that Disney deliberately limits the availability of its classic films to keep demand up? This longstanding ‘vault’ policy could present the perfect opportunity for you to pocket a bit of cash by selling whatever old DVDs you may possess of some of the best-loved Disney films.
Entering competitions for a living isn’t the hiding to nothing that you might think – after all, there are thought to be tens of thousands of competitions being held in the UK at any one time in the UK. Furthermore, with some prizes being worth over £50,000, if you enter enough of them, you may only need one big win all year to make all of that effort worthwhile.
Sell WordPress themes
If you’ve got some design flair, you could also pocket some cash creating the interesting WordPress themes that so many website owners cherish as a way of making their site stand out from the rest.
Making money online doesn’t always have to involve selling something – if you provide a certain product, service or content that other people appreciate, chances are that you can also get some of them reaching into their pockets in support of you.
Publish guest posts on your blog
If you have your own online blog and a steady following, don’t be surprised to receive requests from other website or blog owners eager to provide a ‘guest post’, complete with a link back to their own site. As long as said post is relevant and engaging, why not have it on your blog and generate some profit into the bargain?
Develop your own mobile app
You might presume this is one purely for the tech wizards, but there’s nothing preventing you hiring a developer to realise your idea and duly realising the profits from direct purchases or in-app advertisements.
Place matched bets online
While everyone around you fruitlessly tries to make money out of conventional sports betting, why not place the bets that you truly can’t lose? Sign up with Profit Accumulator today to start discovering this reliable, proven and completely legit way to make money online, that could generate you potentially thousands of pounds every month.
